    You’re good. I hope you had a good trip!

    (And yes, detonators were what I was thinking too.)

    ~~~~

    Solstice crouched atop one of the large generators and stuck the magnetic detonator to the metal surface. She jumped to the next generators and attached several more of the small bombs to them.

    “All ready up here,” she called softly down to Goane.

    “Good. I’m almost finished with mine,” Goane said, tossing and catching a detonator casually as he scanned the room. He pointed to a small computer next to one of the machines. “Go see if that terminal can tell us where an exit is.”

    Solstice nodded and leapt down. After several quick taps she located a small map.

    “Well… there’s no official exit near us, but…” Solstice looked up to where a wide pipe led upward from one of the generators. Goane paused and followed her gaze. He warily eyed the pipe, and the shrugged.

    “Hey, climbing up that thing beats getting shot at,” Goane grinned as he placed the last detonator and started over to her.

    Solstice scrambled up the generator and ignited her lightsaber, beginning to cut through the metal. The pipe sizzled and sparked as the plasma blade bit into its surface. Steam hissed as it escaped the hollow pipe.

    The commotion nearly masked the sound of approaching droids.

    Solstice heard the droids a moment too late.

    “Solstice, look out!” Goane shouted just as the head droid fired. Solstice felt Goane shove her to the side using the Force. A blaster bolt grazed her shoulder, zipping past the exact spot her head had been a moment before.

    (Sry it’s taken me a while lol…)

    Zeinli glanced at the direction the padawans had gone, worry creased her brows.
    They were making their way through the sea of smashed, blasted, and sliced battle droids, going through more as they came.
    She sliced at more droids, dodging their blasts.
    Will was doing the same beside her, and fellow clones and wolf  people were also making the best of their efforts.

    The padawans had been gone for a long while now. Jaina had informed Zeinli of what they had decided to do, but things were getting rough, and if they didn’t stop the factory, she figured this was almost a lost cause.
    Zeinli hoped that the other group had managed to rescue the king.

    Suddenly, a loud and large explosion went off. The dome of fire and smoke rose high into the sky, the team could see it from the gates.
    “woah…” Noaa murmured into the comm from his view in the sky.
    Jaina watched the smoke rise and disperse in the gray clouds with eyes of horror.

    Zeinli watched for a moment as a new sense of encouragement and energy booted around inside her. Then she waved at the team to finish up what they had started, “Let’s finish this!”

    lol, you’re good.

    Ivaylo, Bo’, Gryphon, and the king charged out of the dark city streets and into the battle. Ivaylo offered cover for the others with his lightsaber while Gryphon and Bo’ fired at any droids within sight. They quickly reached Jaina and Zeinli’s sides and joined their efforts.

    “What are you doing here?” Zeinli asked.

    “Our exit was cut off,” Ivaylo grunted. “There’s only one way out now, and that’s the front gate.”

    Everyone braced themselves as a nearby explosion rocked the earth.

    “Get the king out of here,” Zeinli said, recovering. “We’ll finish off these droids and then join you.”

    “But what about the Padawans?” Jaina asked. “Solstice and Goane… Are we sure they got out all right?”

    “We can’t afford to wait. We have to the king out of here as soon as possible,” Ivaylo said. “They can meet up with us at the ship.”

    “They might need help,” Jaina said. Her face was unreadable underneath her Mandalorian helmet, but both Zeinli and Ivaylo sensed her unease. They exchanged looks, and then Zeinli placed a hand on Jaina’s shoulder.

    “You know Goane. He’ll get himself and Solstice out of there unharmed, I’m sure.”

    Jaina nodded hesitantly, and then returned to firing her energy bow.

    Gryphon took the king’s arm and started toward the front gate.

    Not three steps away from escape a band of uniformed wolf-people moved to block the exit. The traitorous governor stood at their head, a sinister fanged smile drawn across his face.

    Sry for the wait, I just couldn’t think of what to write next Lolol XD

    ——-

    “Set blasters to stun, all of you.” Zeinli commanded through her comm. “I’m not killing anyone today. We just need enough time to get the king to safety.” “Copy that.” Steady replied.
    “Rodger, Rodger.” Reel said, then let out, “-No! I’m no droid! I meant.. Uh… Righto!”
    Will laughed and set his gun to stun.
    “Zeinli…”
    Zeinli turned to her cousin.
    Jaina hung her bow on her back, “I loaned my blaster out to one of the clones. My bow, I can’t set it to stun. What should I do?”
    Zeinli pondered this a moment, then tossed Jaina her shoto saber. “Protect the clones and wolf people from getting killed.”
    Zeinli could sense the determination in her younger cousin, and Jaina gave her a nod.
    Jaina lit the small saber, which fit the mini Mandalorian in size pretty well.
    Zeinli nodded, then motioned for them to try to clear a way through.
